Intimate Apparel

NOW - April 18, 2024 

By LYNN NOTTAGE

Directed by AUSTENE VAN

 

Be seduced by the story of Esther, a Black seamstress in 1905 New York seeking love and companionship. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage returns to Asolo Rep with Intimate Apparel, a searing, sensual, and powerful story of forbidden romance. Esther spends her days sewing corsets for other women but hasn’t found love for herself. When she receives a letter from a Barbadian man working on the Panama Canal, Esther kindles an exchange that leads to marriage with a stranger, even while her heart is drawn to a Jewish shop owner who’s promised to another woman. Nottage’s lyrical and heart wrenching play is a modern classic about the power of human connection.

Hang on to the edge of your seat through the twists and turns of a gripping cat-and-mouse game in Dial M for Murder. Frederick Knott’s classic thriller of blackmail and revenge, the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic movie, is given a stylish, intoxicating update in Jeffrey Hatcher’s brand-new adaptation. In 1950s London, a husband hatches a plot to murder his wife after discovering she’s having an affair with another woman. When his plan goes awry, he must scramble to keep from getting caught. Will he get away with it, or will justice be served? Only one way to find out. “Wonderfully theatrical... The pace is quicker, the dialogue is snappier, the women are smarter and more complex.” -The Times of San Diego
